Called Environments, they are part of the StyleSheet functionality. 

For the "Working" style set

  Magnification->1.5,
  PageWidth->WindowWidth,

and for the "Printout" style set (the default)

  PageWidth->PaperWidth, 

Using the "ShowPageBreaks" Front End Token you can Show Page Breaks:

  FrontEndExecute[{FrontEndToken[
    FrontEnd`EvaluationNotebook[], "ShowPageBreaks"]}]

Note that this is a toggle -- executing it if page breaks are showing 
turns it off.

However, there does not seem to be a Front End Token for switching 

  Format | Screen Style Environment | Working

to

  Format | Screen Style Environment | Printout

Cheers,
Paul
